Ben Stanton scored two tries for Sudbury

Sudbury gave a superb performance against Tring, by far the strongest team in the league, and their determined defence often held up a classy opposition team, in a 52-14 home defeat

Three tries in the first 20 minutes from Tring showed their strength, however, Sudbury were far from being overrun and made the visitors fight for every point.

Sudbury settled in the second quarter and only shipped one further score whilst mounting their own attacks.

In the final 10 minutes, Sudbury applied pressure to the Tring line and forced them to give away several penalties in defence, leading to a penalty lineout from which they scored, Ben Stanton scoring under the posts.

In the second period, Sudbury tackled as though their lives depended on it, attempting to run the ball when they created a gap.
